This episode of PICK UP THE SIX is in honor of Chester Townsend, Odes Jefferies and Ronald Hagen.
September 17, 1969. It was the Vietnam War. A fellow team commander, Master Sergeant Ronald Hagen, had been killed, and Staff Sergeant Morris would lead the effort to retrieve his fallen brothers body.
He joined the show to tell us the incredible story, and how a hard but good life in Oklahoma prepared him for that fateful day, and how it all culminated in the Medal of Honor.
